December 18, 2019 – Edith Pearce offers her legal expertise to Healthline Media in an article discussing Chipotle’s policy on paid sick days. The restaurant chain has been contracting with a healthcare provider that has nurses check if workers who call in sick are actually sick, rather than just hungover. Edith tells Healthline that under HIPAA, an employer — or a nurse hired by the employer — can’t directly contact the employee’s doctor or healthcare provider or discuss that employee’s medical condition.
